Public Notices

The following are the Public Notices issued by the Nigerian Communications Commission. By the publication of these notices in print, broadcast or online, the Commission seeks to inform the public of developments and upcoming actions relating to its activites and the Nigerian telecommunications industry.


In the course of its regular online surveillance aimed at protecting telecoms consumers and industry stakeholders, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has discovered a spurious Facebook Account purporting to be that of the Commission. We have since contacted Facebook Team to take down the fake account.

The fraudulent Facebook account with the name: “Nigerian Communications Commission – NCC – Info Zone” was opened by unidentified individuals, ostensibly to deceive and defraud unsuspecting members of the public, some of whom, as NCC believes, may have inadvertently signed on to the fake Facebook account.

The Nigerian Communications Commission in exercise of its functions under the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 (the Act) published a pdf Consultation Paper on Determination of Capital Structure of Licensees in the Communications Sector in Nigeria. (457 KB)

Interested stakeholders are by this notice invited to make written submissions on the subject and send to the addresses below before close of business on Friday March 19, 2021.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) hereby informs all stakeholders that our e-Services Portal at https://www.apps.ncc.gov.ng will be temporarily offline from 9:00pm West African Time, Friday 11 December, 2020 and is scheduled to be back online by 8:00am West African Time, Monday 14 December, 2020 due to a scheduled system maintenance.

The Nigerian Communications Commission has determined to introduce Mobile Virtual Network Operator’s services within the telecommunications market of the country. In pursuit of this, the Commission wishes to obtain comments from industry stakeholders and the general public on key considerations, which will be used to formulate a sustainable and efficient MVNO licensing framework, as well as a highly conducive regulatory regime that facilitates growth and development in the telecoms space, through competitive and differentiated services offered by these virtual operators.
